Rated 5 out of 5 by from There is a saying , 'you get what you pay for', I bought this on a deal so when you strip out government take we are talking ???28, not so long ago one would have paid this for the drills bits & case. Value for money? yes, there is slight running mis-alignment but for general DIY jobs this will make no difference, no hammer but this is only required for masonry drilling. Nice weight & feel other similar cheap drills seen to be bulky and crude & more expensive, li-ion batteries usually ideal & last long term, I like variable speed on trigger, so to sum up excellent bit of kit but not for you if you want a precision engineered drill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought one of these for the missus who is very keen on DIY (and to keep her grubby little paws off my Makita). I had to 'borrow' it a few times when my NiCd battery was flat and it really impressed me! Plenty of power & quite a lot of heavy duty work was handled brilliantly. It also holds a charge for ages with the Li-ion battery - unlike mine. I got fed up charging the Makita every time I needed it so I bought one of these for me too. Very happy with mine as well - there's no sign of the off centre problem that others have mentioned. Luck of the draw I suppose. Keep your eyes open as these are often on offer for ???34.99 and sometimes even ???29.99. But even at full price it's a good buy. Happy to recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over the moon with my purchase..this is a great bit of kit for the money.Its a good solid build feels nice in your hand and comes with all the bits you need to get you started and a great carry case as a big bonus having a Lithium Ion battery which will hold its charge for months and months so no more going to use your drill and needing to charge first. overall terrific value for money great for all those DIY jobs you have been meaning to grab one while you can.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Value for money Bought this drill yesterday so these are first impressions. The drill seems well made and is easy to hold. There is a separate charger, so a spare battery can be charged when the drill is being used. A light on the power supply changes from red to green when the battery is charged. There are also lights on the drill indicating the state of the battery. As has been mentioned, there is an LED light which is just above the trigger. Mention has also been made of an off-centre chuck. This may result from the supplied drills and screwdrivers being bent! I rolled one on a flat surface and it wasn't straight. I used one of mine and the alignment seemed better but it's not perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ordered this yesterday afternoon and it was delivered the next morning via Fedex free of delivery charge. Fully charged in 3 hrs and already tried it out on a couple of things this afternoon. Nice weight and quality feel and works well as both drill and driver. Nice work Maplin! I tried to order something similar from a major DIY chain and they quoted 15 days leadtime plus ???3.95 delivery charge so i'm very glad i turned to Maplin for this product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery completely dead out of box. Charged in about 2 hours. Worked fine. After 5 days without use, found that battery was completely flat. Recharged and removed battery from drill. Still, after around 5 days battery was completely dead!. This has been the pattern since Christmas- battery discharges itself in less than a week whether on the drill or off the drill. USELESS unless you are willing to wait for it to charge every time you need it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Had to return this as the chuck was misaligned. Same with replacement and one in store. 3 out of 3 misaligned. Suspect this is a fault with this model. Shame because delivery was next day.

I have recently tried to charge 2 batteries for the drill. One of the batteries is brand new delivered this week. The light on the charging unit when attached to both batteries flickered green & red. It didn’t stay permanent green or red. Can you advise?
